their own chances, downplay the expectations. our dan lothian is up very early at the university of denver. and, dan, i understand this is the fourth time that these two men have really ever encountered one another in person. is that expected to have any effect when they meet each other on stage? >> well, certainly this is not someone who the president spent time with in the senate, has not spent a lot of time talking to him, and when they debate tonight, for 90 minutes, it will be the most time and the longest time that they have spent interacting at all. so it is an unusual, i guess, setting if you will for the president and governor mitt romney. but nonetheless, they're getting ready for this big event, the last couple of days they have been doing these mock debates, going through every possible question that will be asked, every possible scenario that will be thrown their way. so they're pretty ready for that. they'll be doing a walk through later this afternoon to get comfortable with the actual setting, to take a look at all of the various camera angles. and then as you pointed out,

angeles now and the white house correspondent, dan lothian. the nokia theater live in los angeles, what's going on here, entertainment or politics? they are colliding here. two different strategies, romney with arousing crowds in florida and the president taking yesterday off and today keeping it relatively low key 30 days until the big day. what's the agenda in l.a. tonight? let me guess, money? >> reporter: that's right. he took a -- you pointed out yesterday he was celebrating his wedding anniversary because he was actually out of town in denver on the actual anniversary. so they celebrated that over the weekend. then coming here the president has come to california as kind of his atm. he does a lot of fund-raisers here from the hollywood set and others and has been able to pull in a lot of cash. that's primary focus of the president's trip. as you pointed out he's having the big concert with big names, earth, wind and fire, katy perry and george clooney is expected to deliver remarks as well. in addition to that, the president will also be meeting with what the campaign is calling s
. two events are waiting for him. one is private, the other not so much. dan lothian live in los angeles for us. president is all about fund-raising tonight, dan. so who is going to help him more in los angeles, is it going to be the former president bill clinton or is it going to be, i don't know, bon jovi? >> reporter: wow, you know, that's a tough one. i have to say probably both of them will help him because, you know, the president not only bon jovi but also katy perry is here, george clooney, jennifer hudson. a lot of other big names that appeal to a broad array of voters from the old school like earth wind and fire, so older audiences but also some of the young people as well. so i think the president's covering it all with the various stars who are helping here at this fund-raiser but you can't take anything away from what the xlin believes former president bill clinton brings to the table, not only in the speeches he delivers, but also out there in fund-raising. he's held a number of fund-raising events and this week as well here in california he will be holding a fund-raiser. o
